Description 

Start just below a crack system that breaks threw a 3-4 ft. roof at about 12 feet up. Climb stright up the wall via face and some crack to the roof. Keep your head together and move over the roof and finish to easyer climbing above. Walk off.

The line is found just to the left of the mini drop off that signifies the start of "Fearless Man."

It's a nice (H.B.), but it does not get climbed a lot, so if you go for it be prepared to treat it like a little free solo!!


Location 

It is located on the in the center on the west side of the main rock outcrop of Gilligan's Island. To get there, you park in the 2nd parking lot on the west side of the park. Then take the Bluebird Meadow Trail (staying west) and head out to Gilligan's Island.

Once you reach the Island and the trail makes its loop split, continue up towards the big, main outcrop trending westward. You will pass the wall that has "The Captain" on your left.
Wind your way up to level ground making sure to stay on the left (west) side of the larger outcropping.

The line is located by walking (west) left until you are standing at the edge of a mini-cliff/dropoff. The line starts down at the bottom of the dropoff. You will be able to see the obvious line that moves thought a crack in a high roof.

Side note: This is a really photogenic line!!


Protection 

Many pads and a few good spotters will really help on this one. Although not that hard, a fall from the upper roof could cause great injury!!!

There is definitely lots of grass growing out of the top jugs in the crack sytem. Take a look at the top out before you climb this guy.

I thought it was a pretty safe drop once you got away from the slab and into the upper jugs before turning the lip.
